Police Entrance Test

Of all the uniformed services, the police service is the most popular. It attracts the most applications and has the choice of the highest calibre applicants. So it goes without saying that competition will be fierce and entrance requirements will be stringent. Anyone who goes into the recruitment process less than fully prepared for the police entrance exam can expect to be rejected very quickly.about

Success in the police recruitment process requires much more than just a pass in the written test. The process starts with the quality and presentation of the application form: how much attention to detail (with exact dates and information) has the candidate presented? If the application form is not up to standard, you may not even be invited to sit the new Entrance Test.

Once you have submitted a successful application form, you should then start full preparations for any other part of the process. You might not get much notice for the entrance test and you need to be ready for a fitness test to follow immediately after.

The new test contains elements of language, number and information handling questions in one test paper.
